Abstract:

This document describes a digital computer program developed to simulate an Enterprise, Model DSR-36, 4 cycle, turbocharged, nominal 1560 kw diesel engine-generator set. This program has been used to simulate the performance of the engine-generator set during exposure to environmental and load transients. The model of diesel engine performance is sufficiently detailed to evaluate the thermodynamic state within each cylinder, in the inlet and exhaust manifolds, and at the entrance and exit of the turbocharger components at each instant of time. The pressure forces acting on each piston are translated through appropriate kinematic and dynamic relations to shaft output torque. The basic program for simulating diesel engine performance, which has been developed over several years is a relatively general program capable of simulating both two- and four-cycle engines, and a variable number of cylinders.
